Beach Donkeys and ICAST Recap

This week's episode is a brand new one from Cape Canaveral with Capt. Jim Ross. We always have fun when Capt. Jim's on the Skeeter. And, like our notorious episode we did years ago, "Hour Jacks" we're catching big ol' Jacks again . . . this time we're also catching Goliath Grouper and Bonita. Tune in tomorrow (Friday) at 9:00 a.m., Sunday at 9:30 p.m. or Wednesday at 7:00 a.m. on FOX Sun Sports for this week's episode "Beach Donkeys."

So last week I skipped a blog because I was at ICAST in Orlando. ICAST is the world's largest sportfishing trade show and just about every product under the sun is there. I'm exhausted! Had a great time, got to see some amazing new products, catch up with sponsors and friends and hang out with some folks I don't get to see very often but when we do get together it's always a blast. 

I hung out with the folks from Wright & McGill, Mirrolure, Star Brite, Minn Kota, Humminbird, T-H Marine, Space Coast, Engel, and Seaguar . . . even grabbed a selfie with Capt. Rick Murphy at the Costa booth. 

Then, after hours everyone takes off their badges and logos and we all just have fun sharing fish stories and the love of this sport! I was doing the math and I think this was my 18th ICAST. Yikes!

Check out the AF Facebook page for more photos . . . I'm in Mobile, AL today and tomorrow opening a new Field & Stream and Dick's Sporting Goods store. Both stores right next to each other. In fact, the Dick's store has a hole in the wall so you can sneak over to Field & Stream to pick up some great tackle deals! Come on by if you're in the area!
